We had a young family with 3 children ages 5 and 7 visiting. The small paddleboat and cruise on the Susquehanna was a fun activity. The children loved going under the railroad bridges and seeing the several islands in the river. They were pretty attentive to the Tour Guides explanation. It was a short trip probably an hour or so.... More

We were looking for something to do on a warm August day and came upon the river cruise. It is a short cruise (about an hour) on the river, and at the start there is a recorded presentation about local history. Food and beverages are available for sale aboard. The breeze on the river was just what we needed to... More

It was a charming boat ride but there isn't much to see. The children on board enjoyed the experience. There is some history of the river given while you cruise.

We did the evening trip. The band played inside. There were no seats open inside so we went up to the upper deck. The upper deck didn't get the band piped up. Our trip was delayed a bit due to a tour bus that was running a bit late. The tour on the river was nice and recommend to do... More

we bought our tickets through Groupon, so the price was right. The disappointment came when we were on the boat, the "wedding planner" sat beside our table with an engaged couple, and the planner spoke so loudly throughout the whole ride, we could not hear the tour guide on the speakers. So basically we took a boat ride. The wine... More

While visiting with us from the west coast, we took my brother and his wife on a ride on the Pride. It was peaceful and relaxing. While cruising, we listened to an informative talk about the history of the area, including the local Indian population and prior shipping activities on the river. On-board, there are drinks and snacks available for... More

This was a very informative tour with very friendly boat staff willing to take pictures of couples if needed. The recording covered facts about the river itself as well as history about the city. Great Fun!!

This was a nice tour. We were hoping for a relaxing tour, but there just happened to be a daycare on the tour with us. It was a little hectic with kids running all over the place, but otherwise we enjoyed.

We went on the wine & cheese boating excursion. While it was very hot out, they have an all air conditioned 1st floor. Received four huge sample glasses of wines from Ruffino in Italy. Plus huge amounts of different cheeses, crackers and grapes. Boat was full, had a large party for a Birthday party! The only drawback, was waiting to... More
